Any Star Wars: KOTR deals?

I've never paid $50 for a console game, but this is one I'm not willing to wait for. Are there any discounts that you know of?

I think Bestbuy has it for $49.99 w/a 10 GC with purchase (making it $39.99)

Circuit City is supposedly offering the same deal next week.

Also don't forget about the usual $5 BB giftcard coupon.

I'd go for free shipping, no sales tax. I'm not interested in the useless junk that they give away with games. Usually in so called collector editions.

You can't use the $10 gift card for the game.

If you have anything to trade in, EB is offering 25% extra on any trade-in towards KOTOR.

Is the Best Buy deal effective this week? I know for CC's gift card you need to wait until Sunday (7/20) to get the GC, meaning we'll all be going in on Sunday to haggle over the gift card. If Best Buy was giving it out on Thursday, that would save me a trip and be a huge advantage.

Don't forget Best Buy just sent out people a lot of coupons, and one is for $5 off any video game $19.99 or higher.

My thoughts exactly, same question...

I have it on preorder at EB Games and it may be ready for pickup tomorrow. For the $10 gift card, I would be willing to wait an extra day, cancel my EB order and pick it up Thursday at BB.

The BB deal isn't listed in their current ad, so I imagine you'll have to wait until Sunday just like CC.

When's the last time Best Buy has ever gotten a console game on release day? The one near me (San Diego), has NEVER!

KOTOR deal update:

BTW, Best Buy seems to get certain titles at launch, others not so soon. It must depend on their distributor. For instance, I got Castle Wolfenstein at launch, as well as Rollercoaster Tycoon (two examples of recent titles).

I just made a few phone calls and this is what I found out. Remember, this is for at least the Dallas area.

Gamestop: trade any three current console games(xbox,ps2,gc) excluding older sports titles(2002 or older) and you get an extra 10 dollars added to the trade in value

Electronic Boutique: trade in any current console games(xbox,ps2,gc) excluding older sports titles(2002 or older) or you can trade in DVD's also and get an additional 25% added to the cost of the trade in. So, if the trade in is 10 dollars, you will receive and additional 2.50 for the trade in value

Each store I called said they would not receive their shipments til 10:00AM - 2:00PM tomorrow. So, I guess I'll have to wait another evening.

I took advantage of the Gamestop deal since there's a new store about 2 blocks from where I live. I traded in 6 games and some DVDs and here's what I got:

Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic (Xbox preorder, I pick it up tomorrow)
The Getaway (PS2)
Dot Hack Sign: Infection (PS2)
Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers (PS2)
$10 in Gamebucks

Dot Hack and LOTR:TTT is for my girlfriend since I'll be busy with KOTOR. Looking forward to The Getaway while taking breaks from KOTOR.

I meant the one on the back of the jewel case giftcard.

I just did the Electronic Boutique deal. Which turns out to be a better deal for me. I traded in some games and a couple of DVDs. With trade in credit and the extra 25%, I received a total of 63.45 in credit.

I ended getting KOTR and the MadCatz Lynx wireless controller for 34.12. Not too bad of a deal. Does anyone have any experience with the madcatz wireless controller? I just hope there isn't any lag. Thanks...

I remember reading that that madcatz controller was the worst of the 3 available. You might want to do some research before you open the box....
